Nets pilots facial recognition payments method in Denmark

Monday 9 December 2019 13:10 CET | News

Digital payment services provider across Europe Nets has launched a pilot programme, which tests facial recognition as a payment method.

People working at Vibenshuset – an office community of 25 companies in Copenhagen comprising around 1,000 people – can sign up to participate in the pilot. They can pay for their lunch at Kokkenes Køkken’s cafeteria, simply by linking their face with their employee ID card. 

The solution being trialed is easy for merchants to install, requiring just a tablet with a pre-installed webcam and app. Representatives of the company believe that merchants who offer self-service solutions ‘would be the most obvious adopters of facial recognition technology’.
